Item: Kordel's Dichrotin Chromium 200mcg + Biotin 600mcg 60's
Kordel’s Dichrotin is scientifically-formulated with two important nutrients, Chromium Picolinate 200mcg and Biotin 600mcg, in a vegetable capsule.
Scientific evidence indicates that these two nutrients work synergistically to produce positive effects on insulin function, blood glucose, lipid metabolism and cardiovascular disease. They are also deemed safe by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and are also Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) for use in foods and supplements.
Chromium Picolinate (Cr Pic)
Chromium is an essential trace mineral required for carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. The body cannot make chromium; it must be obtained through the diet or by supplementation. Nutritional chromium is found in minute quantities in foods such as organ meats, oysters, mushrooms, broccoli, and brewer’s yeast. Modern food processing and cooking methods compromise the levels of chromium in foods. A high consumption of sugar also reduces chromium reserves in the body. Aging is associated with a 25 to 40 percent drop in tissue chromium and may be implicated in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).
In the body, chromium is converted into its biologically active form called GTF (Glucose Tolerance Factor) which improves insulin function to enhance glucose uptake into cells and regulate blood sugar levels.
Biotin, a water-soluble B vitamin, plays an essential role in carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. Biotin stimulates insulin secretion and hepatic glucose uptake, and suppresses glucose synthesis in the presence of high plasma glucose, as in the case of pre-diabetes and diabetes.
Clinical evidence supports the efficacy of CrPic/biotin in improving parameters of blood glucose utilization, insulin sensitivity, and lipid metabolism in patients with diabetes. Proposed mechanisms for the nutrient combination suggest an enhancement of glucose disposal, glycogen synthesis, and increased glycogen synthase levels in skeletal muscle, with major implications in insulin resistance. A 30-day rapid response to this nutrient formulation has been demonstrated in controlled studies measuring FBG and coronary risk factors. Longer-term (90-day) studies have shown additional improvements in HbA1c levels. Improvements in glycaemic control coupled with reductions in coronary risk factors suggest that this product could prove helpful for people with diabetes. This nutritional adjuvant therapy offers promise for many of today's most critical health concerns linked to insulin resistance, including diabetes, impaired glucose tolerance, and metabolic syndrome. To better manage patients with T2DM, the addition of CrPic/biotin should be considered as part of first-line treatment, in addition to lifestyle modification and longer-term adjuvant therapy.
- Adjunct Treatment for T2DM patients
- May lower the risk of heart disease in diabetics
